Research Interests

Mechanistic studies of both organic and enzyme-catalyzed reactions of esters, amides and thioesters. 
The experimental methods include:

  • Kinetics
  • Kinetic isotope effects (both hydrogen and heavy-atom)
  • Isotope exchange via 13C-NMR and mass spectrometry
  • pKa determination via 15N-NMR
